Arians snowblower won't move in low gears

I have an Arians snowblower model 932037 sn 002034. It will only move in gears 5-6 and I have to push it a little to get it moving. I've watched the vids on youtube about how the assembly works and it seems to be working fine when I flip it up and test it. I've also downloaded the service manual from the arians web site but nothing in it is popping out at me to be the cause. I'm going back out to work on it some more but I'd appreciate any input.

Welcome to the forum.

Sounds like either your drive disc is worn or out of adjustment. Shouldn't be a hard fix.

I didn't look at the manual for that one, but the couple I have the adjustment is easy. First make sure the rubber wheel inside has plenty of meat on it so you don't damage anything. Lift the wheels off the ground by either flipping it all the way up or just getting a jack or something under it. Find the nut on the lower left where the control rod goes into the body. While spinning the wheels by hand tighten that nut until the wheels start to bind. Loosen that nut 3 complete turns. It is that easy.

While you are looking inside make sure there isn't too much play in the bearings and also maybe grab a rag with some clean gas or brake cleaner and clean off the edge of the rubber friction wheel and the metal disc it rides on to make sure it isn't slipping on oil.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Thanks for the info Shryp. That totally did it. Now I just have to figure out how to fix the pull cord I yanked out. Luckily, it has an electric start.

Have a look through some of these videos for the pull cord fix.
